been written by mitt romney. let's bring in our guest now angela rye and i'm joined in studio by krystal ball. krystal, the one thing marco rubio probably wanted to avoid last night was any comparison with bobby jindal. but that didn't stop jindal from tweeting out his congratulations to senator rubio last night. heck of a job there, marco. but on the seismic scale of horrendous public speeches, where does mr. rubio's come? >> well, the big problem visually is he just didn't seem like he was ready for the big stage. he was sort of sweating. you could tell his mouth was dry. there was the awkward water grab. it's not so much the water itself, it's that he seemed nervous. he did not feel presidential. and i imagine someone like a chris christie who would have gotten up there and would have had that swagger, would have commanded the room. so i think that is unfortunately the lasting impression. and the other piece you pointed out, this is the man who is supposed to be the new face of the new republican party. and his personal story is very compelling. but the actual meat and subs

bring in political strategist and co-founder of impact d.c. angela rye, and we're also joined by republican strategist david winston. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with the optics of this, angela. how important was it for the president to name another woman? >> i think extremely important, chris. it's very important that this cabinet in particular reflects the diversity of america. when you look at what the mission is of the department of interior, the fact that native peoples are a portion of their mission, it's important not only a woman, but a woman from washington state is in this role. >> she is a washington woman. the controversies -- the biggest controversy to deal with, david, is land management related to oil and gas rights. i mean, generally, we're going to make a broad statement here, republicans tend to be oil industry promotes, environmental activists tend to be democrats. is this someone who both sides might feel understands their position? >> i think that opportunity certainly is there, but obviously it's going to depend in terms of what he initi

's no doubt, angela, that the numbers of gun owners who feel the way that wayne lapierre feels. >> the president has their polls. wayne lapierre does not. i remember in elementary school i had to take a current event class and i'm wondering if he's not paying attention to the news. we have newtown with 20 kids gone. and you have this new killer on the rampage in los angeles. at some point the gun laws can no longer control us. we have to control them. >> well, i wonder, too, david if they are tone deaf. universal background checks, which do seem, if anything, have the broadest support. take a listen. >> at first glance, there's nothing universal about it at all. but think about it, criminals won't be part of that universe. think about it. they will steal their guns. >> the polls are not on the nra side. 52% of americans support stricter gun control laws. overwhelming support for the universal background checks. 92%. 56% support a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. is the nra tone deaf? >> well, i think clearly there's a reaction to newtown that is not expected,

to the last drop. >>> david cameron says he'll be semised as a spiritual leader to millions. angela merkel -- the italian prime minister says he is greatly shaken. claudio levagne is covering the. >> reporter: it came as a major shock here. the only time that a pope resigned was back in 1294, the fifth to resign, and that didn't go so well with public sentiment. the recent ig nails was called the great refusal, and even featured in dante's inferno "the divine comedy." received more positive reactions this time. a cardinal said they admired his courage, and it does take courage to step down as a leader of a 1.2 billion catholics around the world, but pope benedict xiv is ed it himself, i don't have the strength to carry on all the duties that are required by the pope and the pontiff. he just wants a younger pope with more stamina and more strength to take over. chris? >> claudio, thank you so much, from rome. >>> two senate committees now plan to hold hearings because of the growing controversy over president obama's unmanned drone program. it's the democrats who are worried about the balan

or accept responsibility? here to debate this, fox news contributor angela mcglowan and democratic strategist maxwell. angela, i will start with you. is this really fair for him for him to be pushing the blame on quote unquote washington when he has been in the white house for four years. >> that's president obama. that's what he does. they pass the buck. instead of taking responsibility. the same old same old. he will blame washington, d.c. isn't he a part of d.c. >> he is a part of d.c. he is not the only one there he can't pass laws. we are talking about an economic recovery. we need to be looking at the people that can actually pass law in order to get that. >> zerlina he can't pass laws when nancy pelosi was speaker. she enacted all of his proposals. that's the president. he has lobbists that go to capitol hill and propose legislation, but harry reid hasn't even passed a budget. >> zerlina i want to bring this up too. a graphic in january the unemployment rate ticked up up to 7.9%. how long is it going to take for americans really to start feeling fed up with all of this espec
